Beverley's foaling thread :)

Finally I get to do one of these! Not sure if anyone will follow, but I'll try to keep this updated at least for myself to look back on :)


Beverley is my '06 mare, just a hair under 17.3h, and as much of a gentle giant as they come - had her since she was 4, and was retired almost a year ago due to injuries. The long term goal always was to breed her, so I figured that this is the best time to breed as I am also pregnant and Bev is 11 now, so here we are! Beverley did the hunters until her retirement (was showing up to 3'6"), A & B circuit, along with hunter derbies. That was my show goals for her, though I would have ideally hoped for her to go a little farther in the show ring as she definitely had the potential for it, but as it stands, I could not be more proud of what was accomplished. She has proven herself to me in the show ring, as well as at home. Someday I hope that she can be sound enough to pack my daughter and other future kids around and teach them the ropes.

SO - she is bred to my barn owner's QH stud, Slow Mount n' Music for a probable HUS prospect.


Last date covered - May 22nd 2017
Confirmed in foal - June 8th 2017

Oh good I'm glad people are following! Wasn't sure if people were as interested in these threads as I am.

Nothing new to report, second ultrasound booked for sometime later this week, just waiting to see what my vet has available. Good news is that I am on medical leave from work now so I'm free whenever she happens to have a spot available, lol.

Beverley has been (finally) enjoying some field time this year, our fields were closed due to the weird wet/chilly weather we've had this year, which is very unlike our area - horses usually start going in the field end of Feb/start of March, and we're generally having 30celsius days by now, but except for the odd week or two, it's stayed in the teens and cloudy/rainy. :( But, fields are finally open this past week so Bev has been quite enjoying herself.

Wow so I haven't updated basically since Bev was confirmed in foal! Lots of life changes that have kept me busy. My other mare passed away August 21st, and I had my own baby August 23rd.

Bev is 230 days in foal today. I am crossing my fingers that she foals May 4th, as that was my other mare's birthday, as well as the birthday of this foals half sibling that is still in our barn. We also did the nail test today, I am never a person that believes old wives tales at all, but considering the nail test was correct for all the broodmares last year, as well as correct for myself while I was pregnant, I was willing to give it a shot. Apparently we are expecting a colt! So, we'll see how that turns out.

I'll attach some pictures ...she's actually much larger looking in person, pictures always dwarf her height/weight, and apparently her baby belly as well, lol.
